After shrinking herself to the finely honed routines of family life, the shattering discovery of her husband’s affair unleashes the protagonist of Megan Hunter‘s The Harpy into a wild tailspin of revenge and transformation that tears apart the seam between motherhood and the monstrous and blurs the mythical and the everyday. In Sisters, the new novel from Booker-shortlisted author Daisy Johnson, an unspeakable act has brought sisters July and September to a sinister new home, and what unfurls is a haunting and visceral story of fierce sibling love and envy that fans of Shirley Jackson and Stephen King will devour. Abigail Bergstrom talks to them about their dark new novels.
